Who We Are:

Indiana’s 45 universities and colleges offer every possible educational opportunity in a social environment that is safe, welcoming, and exciting! Education has long been a priority in Indiana, with many of our institutions dating back to the early years of the 1800’s. They range in size from large research institutions enrolling over 40,000 to small liberal arts colleges, which enroll less than 1000.

Why Study In Indiana?

Indiana is centrally located in the Midwest, with Lake Michigan to the north and the Ohio River on its south. Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville are on our borders, and 75% of the people in America — including those in the Rocky Mountains and in Florida — are within a day’s drive from Indiana.

Hoosiers — individuals from Indiana — are known for their hospitality, which extends each year to the 17,000 plus international students who enroll at every single university and college in the state. Indianapolis, a city of more than one million, serves as the state capital and is world renowned for its life sciences. The pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly has its global headquarters in Indianapolis, which also hosts the Indiana University School of Medicine. The city is also known for its amateur sports and automobile racing — both formula one and Indy car.

Indiana is well integrated into the global economy, and hosts the third largest concentration of Japanese foreign investment in the US, while local companies export manufactured goods worth upwards of $12 billion per year. Some of Indiana’s leading exports grow out of advanced manufacturing, and include orthopedic devices, diesel engines, transmissions and drive trains, jet engines, and a host of other items. Indiana is also the largest exporter of duck in the world, and the largest exporter of popcorn in the US!
